  1. To Linda and the family of Mr Pavliska, please accept my heartfelt condolences in the unexpected passing of Bill. I did not have the remote idea that it would have been my last time seeing and taking care of him a week or so ago. As sick as he was, he was kind, pleasant, jovial and a very nice patient. I will miss him dearly.
    To you Linda, your untiring devotion, love and loving care were inspiring and did not go unnoticed. You were blessed to have each other. I can’t think of any words that might bring comfort to you and the children, however he is not suffering anymore. He is resting in peace.
    God will give you all the strength comfort and peace through this difficult journey . I am very blessed and grateful to have gotten to know you and Bill. God’s love and care be upon each of you.
    Marlenie
